Many thanks for this! Also, I saw I can't use MakeVoices.vbs anymore. But will that script still create valid MP3's so I can assemble them myself?

    I read about the change to language v2 and thus I decided to build a new voicefile for my player. However, I encountered some problems that I'd like to share so maybe someone can point me to the right direction.
    First, the voicefont-program from the howto is obsolete and the voicefiles created with it don't run on the recent daily builds (obviously?). So I downloaded the tarball and tried to compile the voicefont.c file (with Microsoft Visual C++). That executable runs, but gives quite some errors.

    Will the newest voicefont be available from the howto? Or is there no need to get any new version of it? And finally, is the voice handling now stable so I don't have to create a new voicefile next week to follow the changes?

    Thanks in advance!


  The VoiceBuilding page has been updated and corrected and does now provide an updated version of voicefont executable for windows.
  The voice format should now be stable for a while, any remaining issues should not require format changes, I can however not guarantee anything.

  Also we do now provide new voice files built daily on the site, these are generated with festival but are of descent quality.
